Two come-backs?

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

ROME: Af­ter pick­ing him­self up from a crush­ing ref­er­en­dum de­feat that led to him be­ing ousted as Italy’s prime min­is­ter, Mat­teo Renzi said yes­ter­day that he is work­ing on his po­lit­i­cal come­back.

He told the La Repub­blica newspaper he would now work to strengthen his so­cial democrats ahead of elec­tions ex­pected be­fore the end of the leg­isla­tive pe­riod in 2018.

Mean­while, for­mer pre­mier and con­ser­va­tive me­dia baron Sil­vio Ber­lus­coni de­manded snap polls in an in­ter­view with Cor­riere della Sera.

Ber­lus­coni also pledged to stand for elec­tion.
